the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the days leading up to this attack that maybe it was so unsafe for the ambassador to stay in this con schiewt that maybe they should just move all the operations over. this another piece of information come out in the last 24 hours. brian, each since you have been gotten, i don't even know where to start because there has been a series of other things happening where more and more warnings were sent to the state department and more and more questions, quite frankly. >> brian: what's unbelievable it stops at the white house. when all the questions come up and information broken a lot by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spe
wouldn't have relied on the libyan governor to protect our people or cia operatives. would have send the military immediately and not wonder whether he offended the libyan government. who gives a darn if you offend the libyan government if american lives are at stake, particularly if they demonstrated in the months before they could not protect that consulate. that's why it's important to know whether the president know about the prior attacks? because if he did know, then his inaction is totally inexcusable. >> uma: mr. mayor, it's a pleasure to have you on the show today. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> uma: i know you've got a very busy weekend and hope to see you soon and i know you're going to be watching the results very closely come tuesday, thank you. >> thank you, uma, thank you very much. >> uma: well, everybody's been saying the unemployment rate has risen again. showing how listless the economy is. and the labor department showing two green arrows, while 171,000 jobs were created last month. the other green arrow seems to be the problem that t
is head of the cia, has released some information that basically shows that a lot of american entities and agencies wanted to help their comrades. we have to conclude the investigation. we can't politicize it. i think it's important that we put aside the politics. the president wants to get all the facts of what happened, and you know, general petraeus, cia director, i think they're going to release as much as they can. but i was very concerned by the oversight committee in the house releasing names of some of our libyan assets that we had there very rapidly. so let's not politicize this issue. >> your words are probably comforting to some, but it is perhaps too late as this issue has been politicized at this point. four lives are host, and hopefully we will get all the details necessary at some point. thank you very much, sir. it's always a pleasure to have your insight. thank you. >> thank you. >>> atlanta's mayor will join us next. plus, the election aftermath, how "the daily beast" thinks the right will react if romney loses and how the left will react if president obama loses. fir

this was an intelligence failure by the c.i.a. but the president is commander in chief and buck stops with him. the buck stopped with george bush after 9/11. if you are commander in chief you are responsible with what goes on with the military. having said that, i do take exception, they haven't said this but somehow barack obama knew this was going to happen and stood by and allowed it to happen. what may come may come. when you are accuse the president you are accusing him of treason. it would be hard to accuse of any president of specifically and purposely standing by and putting americans in harm's way. there a distinction to be made there. i do agree with the larger point. if we do have answers we should have them. >> that is not at all what the many response critics are saying. the intelligence failure was the explanation the administration has offered up. but it turns out the early intelligence was right. while the attack was taking place for those six hours, there were cables sent that suggest they knew this was al-qaeda related. it turns out it most certainly was. they got it right. one of rema
